A new dawn

Sharing is Caring !!

It was August 2010, I had completed my engineering and got placed in a reputed MNC during on campus interview. The placement happened way back in march. But I dint get a call up when to join the office premises. As it was holidays sort of days, me and my family went to Goa for a family picnic. When we got down at airport and took out our baggage, I got a phone call from a land line number from Mumbai. The conversation went like this.

Caller: Hello ! Am i speaking to MR. Daniel Mangalraj?

Me: Yes. This is Daniel. Who is this?

Caller: Hi Daniel. This is Swarna calling from Patni Computers, Mumbai.

Me: yes ! tell me

Caller: As you are aware you got placed in our company during the campus visit. I would like to inform you that your training would start from September second week here in Mumbai. I have mailed you with all the details. Reply back with your confirmation.

Me: MUMBAI ? Patni is also in chennai right? Can you please let me join in Chennai as I have never stepped out of my hometown alone.

Caller: Daniel, we cant provide such options for each individual. It would be against our policy. Let me know your confirmation by end of the week either by call or email.

Me: OK thanks.

Then I shared the news with my parents who were by my side in airport. They were shocked. As I have never been out of my home town before all alone, they said, no need to go, You can try some other job here itself. All during the tour I was thinking about that only. I don’t want to let go of the opportunity. I thought that would be a new adventure in my life and wanted to take the risk. Also the company is one of the top MNC in India. So I dint want to let go of this. I took the decision of joining in Mumbai and going there alone. for the next whole week, I convinced my parents to accept it.

I dropped an email to HR about my joining, even before my parents said YES. I was confident that I will get an approval from them. They were stubborn for a while. But eventually came to agreement, as I was adamant because its my life.

September came very fast and it was time to bid goodbye. Even though it was a short span of three months. It was very challenging and new for me. I had to adjust myself to the new food, language and make all new friends.  It seemed tough at first but it all came easy. I had the time of my life during the training period, made so many good friends and carried lot of awesome memories back home.  Time went by and my job has taken me to many new places and given me new adventures. Without this first one and the bold step, I wouldn’t have gotten the confidence and these adventures in my life so far.

So #StartANewLife and new beginning with new dawn !!
